Wiley and the Hairy Man

California Stage Theater Creations and Kit Carson, an International Baccalaureate World School present
Suzan L. Zeder’s “Wiley and the Hairy Man”

Set deep within the mysterious Tombigbee Swamp, the story is a spine-tingling tale of a boy, his worst fears and the Hairy Man who haunts Wiley’s days and dreams.

Wiley and the Hairy Man

Through rhythm and rhyme, the magic of this play is not fairy dust, it is soil — the magic of survival, the magic of the earth and the mud of the swamp. In a duel of wits, Wiley learns to rely upon his own resources to conquer the Hairy Man…and his own fear.

Plays: Feb. 10, 11, 12, 17, 18, 19 at the California Stage Theater. 7pm Fridays and Saturdays, 2pm Sundays. Just $5.00 for all tickets.
